Do's and Don'ts

  • Nepal's Culture is so astounding and surprising, that some tips for new visitors are sometimes necessary.
  • To show appreciation and respect, use two hands rather than one when giving or receiving something, even money.
  • Remember not to point with a single finger but use a flat extended hand especially to indicate a sacred object or place.
  • Among Hindus, avoid touching women and holy men. The traditional palms-together "Namaste" greeting is preferable.
  • Don't eat with your left hand nor eat beef among Hindus.
  • Try not to step over or point your feet at another person, a sacred place or a hearth.
  • Remove your shoes when entering a home, temple or monastery (and leather items in Hindu temples) and avoid smoking and wearing scant dress in religious settings.
  • Do not offer food from your plate, nor eat from a common pot, and avoid touching your lips to a shared drinking vessel.
  • The sight of men holding hands is common, but men and women holding hands, and general acts of affection, are frowned upon.
  • Ask for permission before taking pictures, specially inside holy shrines and temples.
